Hi all, I just installed Portmaster recently and was monitoring my network traffic.
Noticed that NetworkManager from
/usr/sbin/NetworkManager makes regular unencrypted requests to
Assuming that NetworkManager is https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/NetworkManager. It does not appear to do any critical functions. I’m on a desktop with a stable connection, so “automatic network detection and configuration” are not needed. Also poked around to see if I could configure it but had no success.
- How can I configure NetworkManager? I do not need it polling an external server this regularly, in fact I’m considering disabling it. For now I’ve blocked its traffic to see if anything critical breaks.
I only managed to find this: Tools/NetworkManager/CLI - Fedora Project Wiki, but it was not what I need.
- If NetworkManager does perform a critical function, can I at least encrypt its traffic?
I’m still new to Fedora and Linux in general, especially on something as technical as this, so any guidance is appreciated, thank you!
